We stopped in for a pint our first night in the neighborhood. Good traditional ales on tap and a friendly bartender. We came back two evenings later for supper. The building looks a bit dilapidated, but a warm traditional pub inside. The food is good. Two of us had the steak and ale pie, another the shepherds pie. Both excellent.... More

We stopped off here for a bite to eat and found it to be a nice little pub in a lovely tranquil location by a lake. It's very 'traditional' inside, rather than these new pubs nowadays which are a sort of 'designer rustic' but it was perfectly adequate. We ordered the Steak and Ale pie, which had plenty of meat...

We were staying nearby and popped in for an evening mid-week meal. The views were stunning over the lake, surrounded by mountains. The pub is an older style and could do with a bit of TLC however dont let that put you off because the food was really good. I had garlic mushrooms and the prawn madras, my partner had... More

Bar keeper exceptionally friendly and helpful, since it was our first night in the area. Food was quick and satisfying, and the view to the lake was delightful.
